    The Fitness Walkers meet every Thursday morning (rain or shine!) at 9:30 a.m. at Bellevue. Every week we explore different areas around the city of Zürich: sometimes we enjoy walking along the lake or along one of the rivers that wind through our beautiful city; sometimes we explore one of the many neighborhoods.

    No matter where we go, we always enjoy walking and talking with each other! After the walk we'll often grab a coffee or lunch somewhere nearby.

    World famous yet a mystery, Banksy is the Bristol-born and still anonymous graffiti artist and painter known for challenging the boundaries of the art market and whose work has been causing a stir for years. The Success Show “The Mystery of Banksy-A Genius Mind” makes this art icon a topic!

    There will be an unprecedented presentation with more than 150 works by the celebrated street art superstar.

    Graffiti, photographs, sculptures, video installations and prints on various materials such as canvas, fabric, aluminium, Forex and Plexiglas were reproduced and brought together especially for this special show.

    “The Mystery of Banksy-A Genius Mind” gives the visitor a comprehensive overview and insight into the entire work of the genius and exceptional artist in an elaborate and unique setting. In line with Banksy’s motto “Copyright is for losers ©TM”, this homage and the works shown there are not authorized by the artist due to his anonymous status.

    Please purchase tickets directly on: https://www.ticketcorner.ch/en/artist/the-mystery-of-banksy-a-genius-mind/

    Dance (Classical Ballet, Modern & Contemporary, Hip Hop & House Styles)

    School for Dance Arts and Body Awareness (Est. 1997), ART Atelier Rainbow Tanzkunst, is presenting the Annual Production of Dance for Classical Ballet, Modern & Contemporary, Hip Hop & House Styles, under the director Gretchen Bernard-Newburger. Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, she began her training with Rebecca Lentz, and at age twelve with the Giacobbe Academy of Dance.

    Learning from some of the world’s finest dancers, dance teachers, and choreographers has provided her with a vast array of pedagogical technique plus a broad perspective for the art of dance. Gretchen exudes a contagiously optimistic approach in her teaching and choreography, bringing all of her professional experience, self-discipline, and knowledge to the students of her school. “Madame Gretchen” has the gift of inspiring and aiding young dancers, understanding fully through her lifelong experience in dance, how to nurture young talent. Madame Gretchen’s direction and pedagogical style are infused with three important qualities: artistic vision, knowledge of technical traditions, and most of all, a passion to share the art of dance.
